So, this is mostly for the benefit of all you new people on the tumblr, but it occurs to me that I haven’t done one of these on my proper website in forever either…so here goes.

My name is Star St.Germain.
I live in San Francisco in the Lower Haight and I love my neighborhood more than anywhere else I’ve ever lived.
My boyfriend and I live together in a truly excellent flat with a lot of space and an only moderately awkward layout.
I play the cello, and draw comics, and make videos, and make widely varying noises into microphones in front of large groups of people at regular intervals.
I used to teach modern dance.

Like most artists, I have a day job.
I write code for the largest producer of hardcore bondage pornography in the US.
It is the best office job I’ve ever had or could ever hope for.
I work in a castle, and I spent every day on roller skates for the first year or so that I worked there.
Our vision statement is: To be the world’s most recognized and respected company promoting the acceptance of human sexuality.
I truly believe that’s a worthwhile thing to promote.

Right now, I’m feeling really fucking motivated to Do Some Big Things.
My short list includes putting out an EP of original music with my band, creating music videos for all the songs on that EP, relaunching the line of laser cut jewelry I put out in 2009, and writing a series of autobiographical graphic novels of a somewhat mature nature.

All of those projects are at least partway in progress and I am DYING to finish them.
If any of those sound like things you want help me with, don’t hesitate to get in touch – even if it’s just to say you’d enjoy it if those things existed.
I’ll be showing all of you how those things are coming along over the next little while.

I really like the color red, typography, oversharing, experimental hip-hop, behavioral science, DeLillo, stripes, thai food, anatomical models, and typewriters.

I also like love letters if you want to send me one.

    I found your blog a few years back, because my google reader service suggested it to me as one I might enjoy reading, and I have!
    The thing I often wonder, though, is how we haven’t met before. We both live in the same city, know many of the same people and share common interests.
    Perhaps some day, we’ll bump into one another somewhere and I can buy you a drink and tell you in person how much I enjoy reading your blog. 🙂

  2. anytime you wanna talk writing, you come find me. i think an autobiographical graphic novel is a beautiful idea. i haven’t written comics in such a long time. i’m hoping this year to collab with a friend on one, probably about the end of the world.

    ps, i love your hair in that photo. :3

    @Shannon One of the reasons might be that I don’t really go out all that often. I spend a whole lot of time at home making stuff. I’m really glad you like my blog!
    If you do see me out and about, don’t hesitate to say hi!

    @Melissa I may just take you up on that! The autobio thing is the project in that list that’s the least developed, so when I get into working on it more in depth, I’ll let you know.

  4. Sounds excellent! Just send me off an email when you’re getting to that point :D!
